Studio to Selfie exhibition opens at Bradford Industrial Museum

A new exhibition exploring portrait photography opens at Bradford Industrial Museum on Saturday 8 December.

The Studio to Selfie exhibition looks at the relationship between the photographer, the viewer and the subject and how now, in the era of the mobile phone camera and the selfie, the photographer is often all three.

As part of the exhibition the curators have set up an interactive ‘Victorian photographic studio’ for people to take selfies in the style of Victorian era ‘Bradford Worthies’ that can be used in the exhibition.

Cllr Sarah Ferriby, Bradford Council’s Executive Member for Healthy People and Places, said: “Photographs tell a powerful story about people, their lives and the world at the time they were living in and this exhibition is a fascinating insight in to this.

“The exhibition studies themes of identity and how different generations have used photography to represent themselves.”
